Diabetes Prevention Program

Join the YMCA's Diabetes Prevention Program (YDPP) 

Learn how to reduce your risk for developing diabetes, one small step at a time.  Our one-year community-based program is designed to enable adults to make lifestyle changes that will improve their overall health and reduce their risk of developing type 2 diabetes.

The YDPP is supported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Diabetes Prevention and Control Alliance, and other national organizations.


YDPP is based on the landmark Diabetes Prevention Program funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the CDC, which showed that by eating healthier, increasing physical activity and losing a small abount of weight, a person with pre-diabetes can prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes by 58%.

In a classroom setting, a trained lifestyle coach will help you change our lifestyle by learning about healthy eating, physical activity and other behavior changes over the course of 16 one-hour sessions.  Topics covered include nutrition, getting started with physical activity, overcoming stress, staying motivited, and more.  After the initial 16 core sessions, you will meet monthly for up to a year for added support to help them maintain their progress.
